Hunting And Rec Farm With Home And Buildings In North Central IL


If you’ve been looking for a farm that provides endless recreational opportunities, then you don’t want to miss out on this property! This property has everything set up for you to walk in and shoot big deer and a lot of waterfowl. Being approximately 2 miles away from the Illinois River, this property is heavily used by migrating waterfowl in the fall and winter. The 26 acre +/- lake is great for holding large amounts of birds. Aside from waterfowl hunting, the lake is also stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish which gives you plenty to do during the summer months in between hunting seasons! There are approximately 50 acres of wetlands, which can be flooded, to offer you countless blind locations. The heavy brush in the wetlands offers plenty of cover to tuck back and remain out of sight. Even with the waterfowl hunting being as good as it is, you can’t look past how great the deer and turkey hunting is on this property. The sellers have shot several nice bucks and turkeys off the farm in the years they’ve owned it. There are approximately 100 acres of timber, much of which is mature oak, hickory, and maple trees. Even with the timber being mature and having a thick canopy, there is still plenty of undergrowth which provides great cover for wildlife, especially fawns and turkey poults in the late spring and early summer. Most of the timber is on big ridge tops which creates natural funnels for directing wildlife movements. In these heavily trafficked areas, there are 3 box blinds which will be included in the sale of the property along with a few tree stands. There is 15 tillable acres which are currently being rented out to a neighboring farmer for $130 per acre. A well-maintained trail system provides easy and quiet access throughout almost the entire farm. What prime hunting property is complete without a place to stay? In 2015, the sellers completely gutted the home on the property and put in brand new everything. It is approximately 1,800 square feet and has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a sliding glass door out to the front deck where you have incredible views of the lake, perfect for your morning cups of coffee. The stone fireplace in the living room is a great touch to your country living. If 1,800 square feet isn’t enough, there is a “craft shop” which is a 14’x36’ insulated cabin with a ½ bathroom, perfect for additional storage or your own personal workshop/office. A small shed near the home also makes a great place to store tools and smaller equipment. There is a mobile home near the entrance of the property which has been used as a place for hunters to stay during the season. There is also a 60’x27’ shed and a 45’x30’ corn crib on the property to give you extra room to store your tractors, ATV’s, boats, decoys, and everything else you are going to need out on this property. If you are interested in taking a look, give the listing agents a call to schedule your private showing!
